Garden tour supports Scout Island Nature Centre and Hough Memorial fund

The Williams Lake Garden Club and Cariboo Piecemaker’s Quilting Club are joining together next week to present a garden tour in the city called Quilts and Flowers.

The Williams Lake Garden Club and Cariboo Piecemaker’s Quilting Club are joining together next week to present a garden tour in the city called Quilts and Flowers.

This is a self-directed tour of private gardens in the city with hand-crafted quilts displayed in each one. 

The 10 gardens featured on the tour range from cottage style to lake-side terraces and mature gardens with gold fish-filled ponds. 

There are gardens designed for large families and gardens designed for small spaces, and for showcasing a corner lot.

“Each garden is a unique delight,” says Maureen Byman who is helping to organize the tour.

In other years the garden tour has been free for the public. 

This year the garden tour and quilt show is a fundraiser for Scout Island Nature Centre and the Hough Memorial Cancer Society.

Tickets must be purchased in advance. 

There is fee of $10 to receive the tour brochure which contains the address and description of each participating garden. Children under age six are free. 

The gardens will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on July 9.

Only 200 tickets are available at Ibea’s Quilting, The New World Coffee House and the Open Book.

The Williams Lake Garden Club meets on the first Thursday of each month from March through October at the Community Arts Centre. 

Guest speakers discuss topics from composting practices to growing rhododendrons.

For more information about the garden club or the garden/quilt tour contact Maureen Byman at 250-297-6494 or Gerry Gebert at 250-297-0192.
